HI, I’M LEE

Mother, Wife, Disabled Veteran, Performance Coach, Mentor, Adjunct Professor, Speaker, Blogger, Podcast Host, Philanthropist, and Cyber-Security Professional

I started Cyber Misfits because my personal beliefs that cyber-security and IT training, professional development, mentoring, and coaching should be affordable and obtainable. I spent a great deal time in my profession learning skills on my own and was it proven to be a very daunting task. I did not have a mentor, coach, or guidance from my fellow industry peers and learned things the hard way. I would never wish that onto anyone.

My strive and motivation for greatness made me one of the youngest executive within the information security field by the age of 26 in my organization. As my career progressed, I found myself mentoring and coaching my peers, assisting them with career goals, and giving them the motivation that I never received and I encourage each and every one of the to not quit. I found my passion. It brought me great joy whenever I was able to help someone to meet their goal and to succeed.

I will not let you quit nor will I allow you to sabotage yourself from reaching your full potential. I love helping other to succeed and helping them to live their dream and to become the best version of themselves.
